Leeds United news: Neil Redfearn on Bianchi, Doukara & Blackpool win

The Leeds boss was in good spirits after securing his first win since being appointed his side's permanent manager.

Leeds United boss Neil Redfearn was delighted to have secured his first win as permanent manager of the Yorkshire side.

Leeds faced the Championship's bottom side in Blackpool and beat Lee Clark's men 3-1 thanks to goals from Liam Cooper, Mirco Antenucci and Souleymane Doukara.

And Redfearn was pleased with his strikers, who 'both looked dangerous,' according to the 49-year-old.

The coach also praised Adryan's assist for Doukara's finish.

Meanwhile, the Leeds boss saved praise for Tommaso Bianchi, who was substituted in the second half.

The Italian midfielder's form has dipped somewhat in recent weeks but Redfearn says his contribution is 'unsung' and that the injury he picked up against Blackpool was only from a 'strong tackle.'

Redfearn also felt his side deserved their result today because they started 'like a whirlwind.'

The 49-year-old wants Leeds to now 'kick on' - and they will get the chance to show what they're made of when they travel to Blackburn Rovers after the international break.
